Exam Software

Examsoft Examplify

Used for undergraduate Nursing exams.


Windows computers MUST be updated to Windows 10.
Mac computers SHOULD be updated to version 10.13 or higher.
Tablet devices, including iPads, are not permitted for exams.


To upgrade your Mac, open your App Store.  If the update is not visible in the Featured tab, download the latest version from https://www.apple.com/macos/how-to-upgrade/
If your Mac will not update to the latest version, most older models are still able to update to 10.13 (High Sierra).
For information about how to update to 10.13, go to https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208969

If you are still unable to update your Mac to at least version 10.13, an older version of Examplify (2.0.2) is still available for download: http://releases.examsoft.com/Examplify/2.0.2/Examplify_2.0.2_mac.dmg
Warning: It is uncertain how long this version will remain supported and may cease to function unexpectedly without notice at any time.

Important: If you have McAfee or Kaspersky antivirus it will be necessary to disable it during the install and then add an exception for the Examsoft service once the software is installed, or disable prior to starting an exam. Instructions for disabling are at the bottom of this page.

Disabling antivirus prior to exams

HESI and Examplify exams can both have trouble launching due to Antivirus programs. We recommend temporarily disabling your antivirus prior to taking one of these exams.
